 I've also had this problem and written a (rejected) patch for the case
 insensitivity.  I'm using Ubuntu 6.06 which also uses the new hal/submount
 methods which mount dvd's as iso9660.  The only way to get them as udf is
 to change the fstab entry to force udf which of course breaks every other
 optical disk...
 I think this is going to become a major problem as more distros start
 using this method, but unfortunately the Myth developers do not appear to
 be open to discussion on the matter.  This is their reasoning:
 "> Could you explain for me why dvd's must be mounted as udf and why it is
 > a problem if not?

 DVD specification...  I would say (although it's never really been
 explicitly said) Myth doesn't want to encourage users to configure their
 systems improperly because the consequences of the improper
 configuration would then be partially Myth's fault."

 When I have asked what problems are caused by mounting a dvd as iso9660 I
 have received no response.  If I was given a suitable reason for this I
 would understand the problem...
 Anyway, if you want to build your own fixed version my patch is ticket
